Only a few nuclear bombs fell on North America, but that was enough to create nearly total destruction. But in the midst of the chaos a few civilized places remained. The strongest of these was the state of Deseret, in the Great Basin, where the climate had changed and the prehistoric lake refilled. There, on the fringe, valiant pioneers are making the desert blossom like a rose.

This is a collection of post-apocalyptic stories. These stories are set sometime in the near future, when World War III has left America in ruins. The stories are about how a few groups of Mormons struggle to survive. Although all of these stories in this book were meant to stand alone, they each include at least one character from one of the other stories which helps to make them a cohesive collection.
